I'd agree - with the right technique, you can easily get reliable
results with 10 thou (0.01") traces and clearances. Double-sided is
also much easier. The two most important things are to print on tracing paper - way
better than transparancy film and also cheaper, and not use sodium
hydroxide developer - use a silicate-based one.   For a detailed
discussion of this and other issues go to
